    Hey guys, I am not a mechanic by any means...

    I just recently had a few repairs done to my truck...

    but I know i need more done to get this thing to perform GREAT. I am a perfectionist, and right now i would say my truck is performaing DECENT. I would like to get better gas mileage, and power amongst all, if this is possible.

    anyways... what are some repairs/mods I can do to my truck that will increase overall performance...

    i am very interested.

    oh, if it matters, i have a 97 dodge ram 2500 with over 100k miles on it. I think it has 100k more left on it. (knock on wood)

    new platinum plugs.
    index them so the open side is facing the intake valve...

    A good tune-up can't hurt. Maybe replacing the fuel injectors as well. A K&N intake can also add some power and give you better fuel economy.
